Oh, and they'd been such great partners up til now. Such a pity.

Heh, good one. Particularly when you consider that ISI has been passing intel on to the Taliban, and had a hand in the terror attacks in India. Badsey references the CIAs drug dealing as evidence of its evil intent. But the CIA isn't regularly engaged in drug dealing. What they are doing is looking out for US interests. And it is not in the interest of the US for the government of pakistan to fall.

Have the ISI been of any help to the CIA anyway? I agree with Triumvere.

I think the ISI is worried that the CIA is getting dirt on them. It's not like too many people will believe that the group behind the Mumbai attacks are taking the high road here.

Is "they" the CIA or ISI? I think Pakistan has the right to control the relationship with foreign agents in their own country, ne?

Once you let the US into your house, you have to deal with the consequences.

it's called Democracy. Egypt's getting it, Bahrain is getting it, Libya is getting it, even France got it. (France, you're welcome)

They are saying Davis was TF373 and the 2 he killed were ISI agents. The documents in question are CIA papers related in getting nuclear materials into the hands of Al Qaida. =This situation is much worse than being depicted.

The CIA repeatedly has tried to penetrate the ISI and learn more about Pakistan’s nuclear program. The ISI has mounted its own operations to gather intelligence on the CIA’s counterterrorism activities

Pakistan is in a difficult situation with the rising food prices -specifically wheat. Like Egypt, Pakistan may revolt (CIA) and the Gov will fall bringing more chaos into the region. I would kick the drug-dealing CIA out, but them you lose the Billions in foreign aid. This is a difficult choice, but still better than the chaos if you keep the CIA. I think the odds of keeping the country together are higher by kicking the CIA out.

I did not know they had spies. This is good news.

“To regain support and assistance, he said, “they have to start showing respect, not belittling us, not being belligerent to us, not treating us like we are their lackeys.”

But whatever else the CIA does it will never be so stupid as to actually trust the ISI.
